The adult swim block - lead by Futurama - on TNT after their NBA All-Star game was able to pull huge numbers compared to the same time period last year:
Adults 18-24 ratings (1.0) increased by 400%.
Men 18-24 ratings (1.3) up by 550%.
Adults 18-34 ratings (0.9) jumped by 29%.
Although this is due to the lead in by Basketball, it is remarkable how Futurama was able to win the crowd over instead of just switching channels. The episode aired was "Time keeps on slippin'" with a Basketball theme.
